Amsterdam’s world-famous Museumplein is an area overflowing with interesting attractions. Fashionistas, nature lovers, history buffs, art aficionados, music enthusiasts, foodies, you name it; everyone will easily find something that interests them. This neighborhood offers fun things to see and do for the entire family.
The Rijksmuseum, home to Rembrandt’s famous masterpiece “The Night Watch,” is definitely worth a visit. The museum has approximately one million objects and artifacts in its collection, with around 8,000 related to art and history. The Van Gogh Museum, also situated directly on the square, is home to the largest collection of Vincent Van Gogh’s artwork. Classical music lovers will not want to miss The Concertgebouw, which is internationally renowned for its amazing acoustics.
If you have had a few too many museums, escape outdoors to the Vondelpark. Pack a picnic and relax in the sun. Later, you can always visit the House of Bols, the only cocktail and genever experience in the world. A cocktail of your choice is included in the ticket price. Fashionistas, on the other hand, will definitely want to stroll down the PC Hooftstraat, the most expensive shopping street in the Netherlands. If someone in your group love antiques, the Spiegelkwartier is also nearby.
If you are visiting Amsterdam with family, spend some quality time together at the Zuiderbad, a historical building with a swimming pool and sauna. Be aware that you can easily spend a couple days in this area alone. Museumplein promises a fun and culturally enriching experience.
